How old were your babies when they started to go longer between feedings? My DD is 7 weeks old and nurses every 2 hours during the day. She might stretch to 3-3.5 hours if she is in her sleeping in her car seat and we are out running errands. During the night she goes every 3 hours like clockwork, and I have adjusted and become used to it.However, last night I nursed her at 10pm and then put her to bed. She didn't wake up and cry to nurse in her normal pattern. Finally at 3:45am (almost 6 hours later), I heard her gently stirring. I woke her up and fed her because our pediatrician said to not let her go more than 5 hours between feedings. When I asked for how long, she had said for a few months. Has anyone else been told that? Or is DD transitioning to longer stretches of time? What is the deal? TIA!
